I am in need to create a Schedule that reports BOTH Specialty Equipments and Plumbing Fixtures.
Bad news is I don't know how.
Thanks in advance
I have included a few approaches below:
1. Create a Multi-Category Schedule. View > Schedule > <Multi-Category Schedule>. Select the available fields, and create the schedule. Then navigate to Filter and determine what you wish to filter the schedule by.
You can always add a note, under a component family such as Type Comments to schedule.
For example, in the plumbing families and specialty equipment families I added a note in the family Type Comments called Schedule. I then specified, in my new Schedule > Filter > Filter By > Type Comments > Equals > Schedule.
This will only list the components I choose on this schedule, excluding the other component families [such as doors, windows, etc.] I may wish to not see.
2. Create a separate schedule [One for specialty equipment and one for Plumbing Fixtures]. They can be arranged on the same sheet as needed.Hope this helps!
I used to do the extra parameter as you said.
Sad thing was every time I insert a new family,
I have to remember to tick/check that parameter.
(It was hidden in my schedule)
I missed a major device that draws 120,000 Btu
in the schedule that calculates gas pipe size.
We have to reissue the drawing just for that calculation.
Seems to me that the filter option on the schedule only
works for the first batch of "argument". The 2nd, 3rd and the 4th
are not effective. I used filter using "categories" to
select "plumbing fixtures" and "specialty eq" and
"mechanical eq", but the schedule only select the first filter.
Is this a Revit flaw that has been resolved in Revit 2011?
If using the “Filter” tab the elements would all have to meet the same requirement. For example there isn't a “Or” option; there is only “And”.
So ideally the elements you wish to include would all use the same value. This way you could use something similar to Schedule > Yes, for the elements you want in the schedule. If the value varied they would be excluded:
